Set Protection Flags and Assign Passwords

When you create a site, there is no password protection enabled by default. The administrator must set the protection flag and assign a password.

  1. Select Administration > Sites > Manage Sites > site > Site Status.
  2. On the Site Status tab, set the Site Status to Online (Protected).
  3. Enter a password in the Password field.

    Specify a password that meets the following requirements:

    • Non-empty string
    • Characters a-z, A-Z, and 0-9
    • There is no minimum or maximum length
    • The password never expires
      Note: If the flag isn't set, the password field can be empty.

    For storefront applications that enforce mappings between email address and username, login attributes are required to support any character that is valid in an email address. The following special characters are allowed for usernames and customer logins.


    This allows the use of all supported email address formats as user and customer logins.
